When we need medical care, we place a great deal of trust in the professionals treating us. Occasionally, mistakes are made – and when they are, patients have a right to seek compensation.
If you have suffered as a result of a medical accident, a surgical error, a misdiagnosis, delay in treatment, or any other mistake in your treatment, our team of expert lawyers can give you advice on what to do and help you make a complaint or bring a claim.
We will take the time to understand your situation, provide you with support and help you through the process.
By making a claim, any compensation you may receive could help to deal with the consequences of what went wrong, as well as helping to ensure that the same mistake isn’t repeated.
Medical Negligence claims can arise against all healthcare providers including consultants, surgeons, doctors, nurses, dentists, GP’s, physiotherapists, midwives, opticians, clinical commissioning groups and NHS Trusts. It does not matter if you have been treated by the NHS or as a private patient.
Our lawyers, based in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Framlingham, Hadleigh and Woodbridge, have a wealth of experience handling cases of this sort, and ensure that our clients receive the right compensation for their injury and any losses they have incurred or may incur in the future.
They also help with attending at inquests and raising a compliant either to the clinician or organisation involved in the treatment or to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman.
